Found this on a different thread. It's pretty cool because they are playing with (ad)words.

Snotty subversive. Good for a chuckle.

You can find it here [iterature.com].

Slightly off topic but pretty funny...

I saw an adword on the serps the other day saying "do not click here type this into your address bar WWW. foo .com for the best in foo"

someone being crafty with their ad budget :)

That won't work for long. If nobody clicks on the ad, it will be disabled within a couple of days.

Of course, that's assuming that surfers listen to the cheapskate. I think vengeful surfers would have boosted his CTR to 10 percent levels :)
